Coalatree Organics Team Trip. July 2014.
We just watched Shane Andersons new film, “Wild Reverence”. Super informative and in depth film about the past, present and future for Steelhead Trout. Give it watch!
Stoked to be a part of Coalatree Organics. Heading on a road trip with the team boys for a few days next week! Can’t wait. The guiding marathon needs a water break….
Weber River evenings with the Western Rivers Flyfisher boys. Fishing with dudes that have the passion flowing is the best. Everyone is in their element. Zoned in on escaping everything but the sound of the water, the presentation of the fly and the dance of the fish and the rod.
Only 7 days left to reach our 20,000$ goal for our new film project Our Two Hands. Head on over to our Kickstarter and pledge!

"Our Two Hands" is an investigation into our society’s complex and intimate relationship with fly fishing for Salmonids. How did we arrive at this crossroads of conservation and sportsmanship and what are the creative alternatives to the currently flawed management practices for Salmon and Steelhead?
Bloodknots Flyfishing is proud to announce the launch of our primary fundraising effort for our new film project, Our Two Hands.

DATES: 6/23 - 7/23
Our Two Hands is an investigation into our societies complex and intimate relationship to fly fishing for Salmonids. How did we arrive at this crossroads of conservation and sportsmanship, and what are the creative alternatives to the currently flawed management practices for Salmon and Steelhead?
The balance and longevity of steelhead fly fishing culture lies in the fate of these fish. The beauty and pursuit of these fish has created a culture, community and livelihood for recreational fly anglers, guides, small businesses, artists and many other interest groups around the world.
We want to introduce you to the new efforts being made in the conservation arena. The economics of fishery management, the guides on the river day in and day out, and the culture of two-handed rods and the swung fly. We could eventually lose the cumulative experience if we don’t input a transfiguration of fishery management, re-think our world views regarding technology and nature and come together as a community to save wild fish.
